We came across a basket of old Barnyard Pulleys
We love their shapes, the iron and the wood
just makes for a lovely object d'art!
Barnyard Pulleys were used to lift bales of hay into the loft of the barn...
one single pulley can cut the amount of force needed
to lift an object in half!
So...what do you do with a vintage barnyard pulley?
Hold your light fixture....
that is a fantastic way to display your newest find!
One of our favorite ways that we've seen to use
pulleys is in the garden....
Imagine how cute these would look with
mums in them for fall!
We love them just sitting around as well...
What a fun idea to use a pulley in your bookcase!
